The needs and lifestyles of
our senior adults cover a full
range- from those who are frail
and require ongoing nursing
care to those who are indepen-
dent but require an affordable
place to live Jewishly.
The diverse agencies that re-
ceive funding from the Jewish
Welfare Federation's Allied
Jewish Campaign work to
ensure that every segment of the
older community is provided
service. The following story
profiles the work of one agency.
The Person. Fran Salwin
seems to have found the secret
to achieving true happiness in
later life. It's keeping busy,
helping others . . . and living at
the Jewish Federation Apart-
ments' Prentis Towers in Oak
Park.
Mrs. Salwin has been a JFA
resident for the past six years
and she couldn't be more
pleased. The soft-spoken but
energetic grandmother of six
loves to chat about her many
activities and busy days. In
fact, she was named JFA's
"Volunteer of the Year" last
year.
But life wasn't always so up-
beat for Mrs. Salwin. A widow,
she had continued to live alone
in her home for several years
after her husband passed
away. However, the neighbor-
hood was experiencing many
problems, and Mrs. Salwin felt
isolated and frightened. She
resisted her children's urging
that she move in with them.
Most importantly, says Mrs.
Salwin, she wanted to be
among other Jews. Six years
later, she feels the move to
Prentis Towers was the right
one. "Everyone's so congenial
and there's so much to do," she
notes. "When a person moves
in here, they live so much
longer."
The young-at-heart Mrs.
Salwin points with pride to her
role as a JFA floor representa-
tive. In addition to acting as a
liaison between residents and
administration, Mrs. Salwin

alsO organizes the weekly
Oneg Shabbat, sings in the
residents' chorus and helps out
at the lobby's main desk. And
then there is time to help
friends read or write letters.
"I'm always available to help,"
she says. "When you work,
you're right in the middle of
things."
The Agency. The Jewish
Federation Apartments is a
member agency of the Jewish
Welfare Federation and the re-
cipient of Allied Jewish Cam-
paign funding. Subsidized by
the U.S. Department of Hous-
ing and Urban Development, it
is designed for senior citizens
of modest incomes who can live
independently.
There are two locations for
JFA's 300 residents: Prentis
Towers in Oak Park and
Hechtman Federation Apart-
ments in West Blobmfield.
Both feature modern, one-
bedroom apartments and a
central dining room where
residents are served a kosher
dinner- daily. A variety of ac-
tivities include holiday cele-
brations, lectures, movies,
game nights and field trips.
